Five Top Tips For Shopping For Your Wedding Suit

Finding the perfect suit for your big day can be a daunting prospect. With so many different styles and options to choose from, it can be tough to know where to start. So, rather than face a time-consuming hunt for the very best suit possible, we have put together our top five tips to help make shopping for your wedding suit as smooth as possible…

  1. Bring your partner 

The biggest tip to remember is to make sure that you are going shopping with your partner. While the bride’s dress should remain secret, your suit should be shared with your loved one as they will know you, your tastes and the themes of your wedding. 

However, you should avoid taking the rest of the guys with you until you have found the style you want; otherwise, it can make things more complicated and slow the process down! 

  1. Know your colours and themes 

When it comes to suit shopping, another important tip to remember is to know your themes and colours before you start looking. If you want to make the process even easier, then you could even take colour swatches or photos with you to ensure that you can get the perfect matching suit! 

  1. Shop like a bride 

Many grooms feel like they need to rush buying their suit, opting for the first style they find that they like. However, you want to look your best, so make sure that you take the time to find the perfect suit for your big day. Only once you have taken the time to choose yours should you then move on to searching for the rest of your groom’s party. 

  1. Shop on a weekday 

Planning a wedding is a big project, and it can take up a lot of your time. However, while it can be tempting to push your suit shopping back to the weekend so you don’t need to take any time off work, you will be battling against much bigger crowds. Take a day of annual leave, and you will be able to enjoy quieter shops and more attentive and personal service. 

  1. Mix and match! 

Finally, don’t be afraid to mix and match your suits. Your wedding day is your chance to create a one-time outfit that will create memories that last a lifetime. You want to make sure that you feel special, so try on different waistcoats, ties and accessories until you find a combination that leaves you looking and feeling your best!
